From Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.'s Kick-Ass, Hit Girl is a lethal martial artist and weapons expert; she has been trained to fight crime practically since her childhood. Constantly on the run, Hit-Girl's upbringing and social life have been limited to her training and crime fighting and she is a very effective superhero. She has been described as a mix between John Rambo and Polly Pocket. Hit-Girl has been convinced by Big Daddy that she is out to avenge her mother. She longs for her father and her to have a normal life as a "regular family" once her mother has been avenged. In the film adaptation, Mindy is played by ChloŽ Moretz. Standing 9 inches tall to the tip of her gun, Hit Girl has been sculpted and painted in meticulous detail by Joy & Tom Studios.
